The Virgin with Angels by William Bouguereau

The Virgin with Angels by William Bouguereau

This religious art created by William Bouguereau in 1900 sparks interest and genuine love in our hearts. The angelic figures circulate around The Virgin Mary and her son Jesus as we can imagine them to be on a throne in Heaven. As all of the angels are positioned around Jesus in a circular manner with their arms outstretched; you see the admiration towards The Virgin Mary and Jesus and the significance of His birth.  The upright position of Jesus also symbolizes His superiority among the surrounding angels, some of which are kneeling around the Mother and Child. The shades of yellow and the small stars above Mary’s head create a celestial aura around Jesus and the Virgin Mary in this classic religious artwork.
